This is going to be a four-parter (This is the shortest of the four)

 

Part 2. Complete with evidence of illegal narcotics abuse.

 

Part 3.

Well I see it's working now.

nice, one of my favourites. thank you, although the game model has a pronounced step on the front glacis as opposed to the nice slope in real life.

always been a fan of the tilly since the old airfix days.

The Queen of the Desert, and one of my favorite tanks in WoT.  Thank you!
 

I'm really looking forward to part II because I'm sure it will turn out that such a small tank was cramped for the tankers.

Any hope to get an accurate front armor profile with the HD redo? On all 3 in game matilda?   I can't imagine the frustration of people trying to damage a matilda with the correct storage compartments in the front.

These videos are probably one(of not many) things from WG's portal I actually bother looking at and enjoying. Wish there was even more detail in these though.

 

By the way... your link in the portal sent me to the Asia's forum.

Chieftain..I really love your videos. Oh and when I watched this on the portal, bob took me to the Asian Forums :angry: I didn't notice at first, so I tried logging in and it kept saying incorrect, so I went to contact costumer support and that's when I noticed :blinky: I still love your videos, "This is not a quite tank, but even if you heard it what are you going to do?...call in the Luftwaffe"

Think about cramming 3 guys inside that tiny turret.

Sweet Chieftain Transition!

 

I have to admit....

I no longer look forward to news of gift shop "deals"

I rarely get excited about weekend events postings

 

However I love watching the videos and reading the info that The Chieftain posts.  Thank you for what you do sir!!!

Chieftain's guide to killing the Matilda:

1) run away screaming.

2) hide.

3) call in one of the following:

artillery.

air strike.

the (in)famous 88mm AA artillery in direct fire mode.

 

I love the in-game Matilda. awesome armor, and ive gotten the reload under 2 seconds.

Well done sir!! Matilda is a fun tank historically. Also one of my favorites to play in game. Excellent armor and gun ( the 2pndr X-B). Got reload to 1.77 seconds, rip up even kv-1s. Thanks!!

Great video, love Matildas.  The though process in developing infantry tanks is pretty interesting.... Why go fast when their job is to support infantry? lol

 

I only wish the in-game Matildas had the reputation of the real-world ones.

You mean you want them to do worse in-game?

Chieftain, as much as I've been waiting for some Matilda and Churchill In the Hatch's, I'd love to see you do a Japanese tank. Chi-Ha, Ha-go or Chi-Nu if you could find them.

Love Matilda's. The AIF used them in the Pacific. if you look up lancers.org.au they have some info in the museum and history sections. The one on the grounds is a dedicated (consecrated) memorial. An iinteresting bit has a description of the battle of sattelberg and a translation of a Japanese diary found there.
